ITEM 8238222 - Removed from a temperature and humidity controlled wine storage unit; Purchased at retail
A masterpiece from this near perfect vintage. Completely ripe, classic & fresh with oodles of red cherry & blackcurrant... still young and tannic. So beautifully structured, so smooth and polished, firm yet soft, just a gorgeous wine.
...potentially the best Rubicon made to date. It’s not to denigrate other vintages, but there is a finesse & elegance combined with great richness... beautiful, sweet crème de cassis with a floral underpinning... a great young Rubicon...
Gorgeous... Dark red cherries, plums, licorice and leather blossom as this rich, resonant wine opens up in the glass. Pliant and super-expressive... The polished, refined finish makes it hard to resist a second taste.
